Zerão, August 2010:

Luigi Borghesi, best known as "Zerão" (Big Zero), is the most popular valley of Londrina. It's located southern Downtown and its creek flows into Lake Igapó I.

Zerão, centre of the map, below Downtown. Lake Igapó I on the right, and the Igapó II on the left:


On my way to Zerão, Eurocenter:

Over the fence, a gated-community, Zerão's trees and Bandeirantes Avenue and Vila Ipiranga's skyline, just south Downtown. It's the hospitals' district:

Lago Igapó I, August 2010:

Built on 1959, to celebrate the city 25th anniversary. It's the biggest and the oldest lake on the Igapó complex.

Ending of Zerão, beginning of Lake Igapó I. The lady thought I was photographing birds (Don't! I'm not that kind of geek!):
436.


Gooses, gooses and more gooses. The canal is the end of the Zerão's creek, flowing into Igapó I:

And back to the lake. On the right, we have an "araucária" also as known as "pinheiro do Paraná" (Paraná state pine), the state tree. They are not that common in Londrina, but on Curitiba and southern Paraná, which are much colder:

Some residential buildings nearby the Civic Centre, by Lake Igapó I:
528.


AREL, former Germanic Club. The name was changed during the WWII, when Brazil was under Vargas dictatorship. The Japanese Club also had its name changed to ACEL. Despite the name changing, both clubs still preserve the community traditions. Germans and Japanese, after the Italians, are the biggest immigrant groups on Northern Paraná.

On the right, a pedestrian corridor, linking the two streets. Those blocks are quite long (over 400 meters), but narrow:
